Looked like a great app until I found out about the amount of data (text messages, clipboard contents, recent photos, and notifications) that is transmitted to Microsoft's servers for something one would assume is transferred over the local connection to the PC. Not for the privacy conscious, I do not recommend using this app.

I use to love the app! I could do everything on my phone or switch it to my laptop, but now since the update, I can't send websites toy laptop anymore from my phone. When I click the send to devices and click the name of my laptop, it just shows a loading sign for a split second and never opens the window on my laptop! This makes things a lot harder for me to accomplish. I really relied on this app for my school work and job.

When I sit at my desk, I place my phone on the vertical wireless magnetic charger stand, and open my laptop. From there, because of this app, I don't need to touch my phone again until I leave my desk. The process is smooth. The functionality is phenomenal (at least with the Windows OS on my laptop), and it's cool to type text messages using a full keyboard. And now that I have a new office/space, it's super convenient to be able to make/take calls through my PC!
